The team has been busy. Here’s the release that we put out this morning about our upcoming cloud print features – we’re really excited about this!:
Pogoplug, the popular multimedia sharing device, today announced a major upgrade with the launch of Pogoplug “web printing.” Now, for the first time, users can print from an iPhone, iPad, Android or other mobile device from anywhere in the world.
“Pogoplug’s vision is to free the modern digital lifestyle from dependence on an always-on home or office computer,” said Daniel Putterman, CEO and co-founder of Cloud Engines, Inc. “First we changed the way people think about personal storage by making every hard drive accessible over the Internet. Now we’re web-enabling printers.”
Pogoplug cloud printing will initially support all HP printer models and all Epson printers released since 2005. Set-up is simple and straightforward; once a printer is connected to a Pogoplug, it is ready to use.
Additionally, users can email any document directly to their Pogoplug for printing. Printers can be shared with friends, family and colleagues or used to create printer ‘hotspots’ for temporary access to a printer in a public location.
The new Pogoplug “cloud printing” feature is coming automatically to existing and future Pogoplug customers later this Summer. There are no fees for the new feature.
